“Ludo”, helmed by Barfi fame acclaimed director Anurag Basu premiered on Netflix on 12th November. The movie is a multi-starer with main lead featuring actors like Abhishek Bachchan, Pankaj Tripathi, Rajkummar Rao, Aditya Roy Kapur, Asha Negi, Rohit Suresh Saraf, Pearle Manney, Fatima Sana Shaikh and her Dangal co-star Sanya Malhotra, and the director himself Anurag Basu essaying a small but meaningful role.

In the streaming giant Netflix’s own words, the story of Ludo is, “From a resurfaced sex tape to a rogue suitcase of money, four wildly different stories overlap at the whims of fate, chance, and one eccentric criminal.” Simply Ludo is a film comprising four different stories, each story mainly featuring two characters involved in a troublesome situation. Now, these four lives and eight characters have a common link at the center, a criminal played by Pankaj Tripathi.

In the acting department, all characters have played their parts very well. Special mention for Abhishek Bachchan, Pankaj Tripathi, and Rajkummar Rao.

Anurag Basu’s direction is simply brilliant. The director already has mastered the art of telling several stories simultaneously. No doubt, only he could have done justice to such a story.

My Rating – 4/5
